British beauty, Alexa Chung, is by far one of my favorite it-girls. She is a contributing editor for British Vogue, model and host of 24 Hour Catwalk. Not to mention gorgeous to boot. She is one of my fashion icons for sure.
Alexa began modeling at age 16, when she was approached by an agency at a festival. Since then, she has modeled for companies such as Urban Outfitters, been in a few music videos, hosted shows for Mtv and Lifetime and became a writer for Vogue magazine. Check out her style evolution to see how the 16 year-old that was discovered at Reading Festival became a style icon.
